Your Ancient Corinth Half Day Tour beings after breakfast you will be picked up from your hotel and we will drive out of Athens, heading Southwest until we reach the Corinth Canal. This body of water connects the Aegean and the Ionian seas. We’ll have a short stop here and then continue on to the ancient site of Corinth, the place where St Paul lied and preached for two years.
Corinth was a prosperous city in ancient times, and important centre of trade. The ruins of the city include and Agora (market place) and Apollo’s Temple (6th century B.C.). Although not as rich in mythological history as some other sites in Greece, Corinth does have a few tales attached to it. In ancient mythology, Corinth was the setting for Theseus’ hunt for the wild boar, and this is the place that Jason settled with Medea after his adventures looking for the Golden Fleece.
A short stop at the site of the Ancient Port of Cehrees, where St. Paul disembarked, will conclude the visit.
We will arrive back in Athens in time to have a late lunch.
